Mona Lerch is a self-taught contemporary artist currently residing in Brno, Czech Republic.
After having completed her studies in Australia and the UK, she returned to the Czech Republic to pursue her career as an internal security specialist.
Originally a dance choreographer, painting was not an obvious artistic path for her; however, she has been drawing inspiration from movement, emotions and senses just as she used to do when creating choreographies.
Mona concentrates on abstract oil painting. She uses both life and work experiences to give shape to unique pieces of artwork that are characterized by elaborate structure and layers. Her paintings are intuitive and offer space for the viewer's imagination.
Being a nature lover and a passionate advocate of ecological lifestyle, she digs deep into her fantasy to materialize her own inner world on canvas. Her mission is to create a narrative embodying the beauty we have around us that we forget to see and to break the boundaries between the body and mind.
